*.nds files are the basic DS binaries that most users put on their devices and launch.

*.ds.gba files have a special header attached to the front of the file so that they can be burned to old-school GBA flash carts and launched.

*.sc.nds files are actually *.ds.gba files that are renamed for Supercard users so that the Supercard will launch it in DS mode. For some reason, the Supercard launches files better when they're in *.ds.gba format, so people just copy and rename them for convenience.

You only need to have one on your device at a time.

Read my last statement. You only need to have one on your cart at a time. You didn't say what homebrew device you're using, so I'm just going to guess that you should use the regular *.nds files.

There are several homebrew devices under the name "Supercard"

If you're using a slot-2 Supercard (CF, SD, miniSD, or microSD), then you should use the *.sc.nds files when available. If a regular *.nds file does not boot at all (gives you white screens), try running it through the Supercard Magic Homebrew Patcher, which will create a *.sc.nds file for you to use.

If you're using the Supercard DS:One, then use the plain *.nds files.
